Has anyone been called back to work and not gone as the UI + $600 was more than they would make if working full time.

There is something wrong with this picture.

With the PPP loan forgiveness, the employers need to restore their employee base to pre-February 15 levels. So they are calling back employees even if there is no work or is unsafe.
.
In my organization everybody came back because the UI benefits + $600 is less than wages. We pay our people well.

I haven't because the bars are still closed and there are no gigs. But I will once they open and we resume gigging. The extra 600 is nice, and needed right now, but I'm not the type of person to not work just to keep getting it. BUT.... I look at it this way, I'm getting back some of the "way too many" taxes I've paid into anyway.

You really can’t blame them if they stay home and get more....

It will take years to return to normal.

We had 2 slow weeks. Since the end of the 2nd week we have been super busy. Guess the non essentials decided to get their cars fixed while they were sent home. My soonest available appointment is 7 days from now!

So no I did not get any time off to get to collect unemployment.

My daughter will be taking a cut when she goes back to work this week. Her husband has never been able to get into the system. Unemployment roulette.

When the employer notifies the UI office the job is back open but the worker decides not to return, his status changes from "laid off" to "quit." There are no more benefits then. There is no option to "stay home for more money."

The economy won't return to normal, ever, at least in our lifetimes.

We're just beginning to see the fallout and plenty of business like major retailers and restaurants will never fully reopen.

The bizarre thing is how some industries are in some sort of delusional state like the new car business, they are still trying to peddle their wares as if nothing has happened, for the most part. I will bet that many new cars will be scrapped before they are sold at a large discount so they can carry the numbers over on the books.

Unless they start selling at 50%+ off of retail I won't be buying one.

I don't think you have a choice. If you're offered your job back and refuse I think you can be cut off. Unless you can prove there is a danger or your employer is reckless...

Yep. That’s going to happen to lots of folks trying to stay home and get paid.

Yeah, same here. I guess it depends on how long you think your lifetime is. If you're planning to be one of the dead soon, then he could be complete accurate. If you watch Donnie Darko, he predicted the end of the world and for him, it was.

As for new cars, something like 75% of the cars sold are used cars, and it's only about 20% of the workforce that isn't working. I'm still working, still making money, sales may be down but so is production so they might be able to balance the two out but they'll probably start some discounting. Never saw them do 50% off even after the dot com bust or the last recession back in 2008.

We'll always go back to "normal", one way or another, the normal will change and people will adapt.

People probably will spend less on boat and SUVs but more on home improvement, less on take out and eating out but more on simple to cook food (i.e. pre-marinated meat, ready to bake pizza, etc). Shopping malls and most clothing retailers will be in big trouble, and the cloth shopping behaviors will change forever.

I sure hope you're wrong! While I've been making it & doing quite well considering....It would be A LOT better if my car lot accounts could move more inventory. They were having a record year before this.

Not an expert by any means.....But slashing prices for a few circling Buzzards might not be the wisest decision?
